Rescue cats Felix and Fritz from 8 Lives Cat Rescue, in Sheffield, needs homeHello, We are Felix and Fritz and we are 18 weeks old... we came to rescue as nervous 6 week old kittens. We have grown in confidence since then with lots of gentle TLC. We are still a bit wary of things like hands coming towards us but once we're being stroked we purr loudly as we love contact with humans. We're also curious and love to play. The rescue people are confident that with time and a bit of patience we'll settle into being very loving cats. As we're initially nervous we are probably be best suited to an adult only home with some experience of cats, though homes with kids mature enough to understand our needs would happily be considered. We've been fine with the other cats here so could be happy with reasonably friendly resident cats. We haven't had any experience of dogs here but we're young enough to potentially cope with a friendly, cat savvy dog. We have been vaccinated and chipped but are too young to have been neutered so will need to be kept indoors until this is done please.

Rescue cat Pepsi, Lina’s Cat Rescue, Derby, needs a homeMeow! I'm Pepsi and I'm a cool, sweet, dark, bubbly and refreshing cat. OK, so maybe I'm not refreshing, but I do otherwise live up to my name! I have beautiful black, medium length fur with a hint of brown, and am a playful girl aged around 7 years. Unfortunately I had to leave my previous home due to an allergy, but you will find me to be a friendly, affectionate cat that enjoys being brushed (but not so much being picked up!). I'm full of character and a cat that you can really fall in love with. Ideally I would like to find a home with just adults or older children as I can be a bit physical when I play, but it's just part of my personality - I love having fun and don't mean any harm - so some understanding humans would be perfect. I would much prefer to have access to the outdoors if possible, and have been neutered and micro-chipped ready to find my new home. If you think you could give me the sort of life I would love, please do get in touch.

Rescue Cat Turnip from RSPCA - Tameside & Glossop, Manchester needs a homeHello, I’m Turnip - no, not a vegetable I’m a cat, a pretty, affectionate, tabby and white one too! I was taken to see the vet person when I came into care and they think I’m about 12, have been neutered and that my vision and hearing aren’t the best but it doesn’t stop me enjoying life! I was a bit thin and had a chest infection too, but I got antibiotics and I feel lots better now. I’m being well fed so have put on quite a lot of weight and am looking healthier - I’m just looking for a forever home with a special human or two to love and they must have comfy knees to sit on! I love being with my human and getting cuddles as you go about doing things. I’d be better as your only pet and I’d need to be an indoor cat for my own safety because of my eyes and ears not working as they should. So, what do you think, have you got lots of love you could share with me? Please get in touch, I’d love to meet you!

Rescue cats Mickey & Oliver from Wonky Pets Rescue, Northampton, need a homeHello, I'm Mickey, the gorgeous seven year old tabby and white boy on the right, and this is my equally lovely brother Oliver.  We're both fabulous chaps who've been well cared for, but we have quite different temperaments; I'm a charming, confident fellow whereas Oliver is shy with strangers and will need more time to settle in and gain confidence.  Given a calm, understanding home without young children he'll be able to relax and show his truly sweet nature.  We'll both make wonderful furry companions and can be homed together, or separately into homes with another friendly feline.  We could share a home with a placid, cat-friendly dog, and would both enjoy safe outdoor access once we've settled in.  We're both neutered, microchipped, flea and worm treated and vaccinated, and will be rehomed with five weeks free pet insurance.  Please come and meet us soon!

Rescue cats Spitfire, TigerMoth & PiperCub from Woodland Nook Cat Rescue - Alfreton, needs homeHello, I'm Spitfire and I want to tell you a story. Once upon a time three very frightened kittens arrived in rescue. Some months passed with lots of TLC from the rescue people, and we are still nervous but we have grown in confidence, especially with people that we know well. We are seeking a patient home with adults or older kids who will let us settle at our own pace. We are very close (the rescue people think its charming!) and would like a home together with outdoor access. We have been told we are stunning in colour and markings. I'm the ginger one by the way! We are about 18 months old and have been neutered.

Rescue cat Smudge, at RSPCA - Macclesfield, South East Cheshire & Buxton, needs a new homeHello, my name is Smudge.  I'm a sweet and very handsome young chap of two years old, and I arrived in rescue from a large group of over twenty cats.  Due to this I haven't had much interaction with humans and am consequently very shy, though I'm fine with other friendly cats.  Given all the time, understanding and patience I need to gain confidence in a calm home I'll be able to show you what a lovely, affectionate little fellow I am - full of purrs and head butts!  I've been health checked, worm and flea treated, microchipped and neutered, and have started my vaccinations, so I'm ready to find my wonderful forever home.  Could you give me the love and gentle reassurance that will help me to thrive?  Please get in touch.
